Yearbook Pricing

Pricing your Yearbook

Most schools choose a $20 to $25 price target for their book - don't forget to consider sponsorships and personalized messages, which can easily cut $3 to $6 off your final per-book cost, allowing you to achieve your price target with an even better book!

 

Our design fee isn't just for printing your yearbook, it includes photography, photo editing, layout, and more. Details...

This is some sample error text that really isn't all that important right now, but it will be important when there is an actual error, because errors are bad and this automatically makes them more important than random filler text, which is what this is and that's why it is not actually all that important right now.

Our design fee level increases as the number of content pages in your book increases; this not only pays for the extra design work but includes photographic coverage of more events to help you fill those extra pages!

Even in a full-color book, we recommend 2 B&W pages for a title page (school logo/welcome message) and a table of contents.

Binding prices include a full-color custom designed cover: front & back for saddle-stitch & perfect bind, and front only for coil bind.

Coil bind also optionally includes a solid black back cover.

Coil and perfect bind include three blank sheets (6 pages) at the end of the book for additional signature space.

Sponsorships or Personalized Messages

These are a great way to help lower the cost of your yearbook, allowing you to get a better book for a better price. We will do the work of scanning and/or laying out files your parents and sponsors send us, and we don't count sponsor pages when calculating our design fee! That makes the process easy, painless, and risk-free.

 

In our experience, schools that sell black & white eighth-page units for $20 sell around 6 or 7 pages worth - that's enough to cut $3 to $6 off the final cost of each book!

Enter your desired pricing and anticipated unit sales to see the effect on your book price.

Remember, you will probably sell some larger sponsorships and messages. A half page would count as 4 units if your units are 1/8 page each.

For example, if you want to sell black & white eighth-page units for $20 each and expect to sell around 48 units, choose "Black & White", "8", "$20", and "48." You will see your anticipated per-book profit to the left and the effect it will have on your bottom line in the calculator above.
